March 4, 2015...Does this look like Mexico?!

Elder Allgaier at the MTC with his uncles who dropped him off.
On October 24th 2014, Spencer opened his mission packet and read that he had been called to the Mexico Monterrey West Mission!  He was to report to the Mexico Missionary Training Center (MTC) on March 4th, 2015.  However, due to a small delay in getting his visa, we found out that he would have the opportunity to first attend the Provo MTC in Utah for two weeks, then transfer down to the Mexico MTC where he will complete his last four weeks of training.  As usual, Spencer saw the benefit of being able to be a part of both MTCs.  He was set apart on the rainy evening prior to his departure and is now a full time missionary who is undoubtedly getting used to being called Elder Allgaier! In fact, we received a quick email from him last night to let us know he arrived safely and he had this to say, "I was very excited when the first thing they gave me when I walked in was my awesome name tag, but I still feel like it's someone else's and I'm just a kid who they let wear it for a bit." Typical funny guy!  FYI, his preparation day (p-day) is Tuesdays while he's in Provo, so that's when we will hope to hear from him next time.  We are looking forward to this amazing experience!
